Healthy Eating for children
Ladybirds Childcare are committed to supporting healthy eating amongst all the children in our care. We are keen to provide a variety of foods which allows children to experience the taste of different foods and to appreciate the importance of healthy, nutritious meals.
Our lunches are prepared in house and we try to include meat, protein, carbohydrates and vegetables in addition to vegetarian meals for children who follow a meat free diet.
We also promote healthy eating through our daily snacks. Fresh fruit and raw vegetable are offered daily alongside a selection of breads, meats, cheeses and cereals.
We receive a lot of our snacks from the "fare share" scheme in addition to donations from Tesco. We also have access to the sensory garden where our gardener grows lots of lovely food for us to try.
